VaMoS 2017

11th International Workshop on Variability Modelling of Software-intensive Systems

1-3 February 2017
Eindhoven, The Netherlands

------------------------------------Call for Papers---------------------------------

Variability management is a major challenge during the development, maintenance, and
evolution of software-intensive systems. An important precondition for the effective
and efficient management of variability is that it must be explicitly modelled. With
variability modelling coming of age, it is important to consider also non-functional
properties of variable software systems. VaMoS 2017 particularly welcomes approaches
that deal with the measurement, prediction, and modelling of non-functional features
and properties, as well as approaches that address the wider spectrum of variability
management, like requirements, architecture, implementation, verification, evolution
and refactoring.

The VaMoS workshop series aims to bring together researchers from different areas
dedicated to mastering variability in order to discuss advantages, drawbacks, and
complementarities of various approaches, and to present new results for mastering
variability throughout the life cycle of systems, system families, and (software)
product lines.


Abstract submission: November 10, 2016
Paper submission: November 14, 2016
Notification: December 2, 2016
Camera ready: December 16, 2016
VaMoS workshop: February 1-3, 2017


VaMoS 2017, like previous VaMoS workshops, will be a highly interactive event. Each
session is organised in such a way that discussions among the presenters of papers,
discussants, and other participants are highly stimulated. Typically, after a paper
is presented, it is immediately discussed by pre-assigned discussants - after which
a broader discussion involving all participants follows. All sessions are closed by
a general discussion of the papers presented in that session. The workshop language
is English. Attendance is open to all authors of accepted papers, invited speakers,
the organisers, PC members, and to guest visitors that commit to become assigned as
discussants of papers.

TOPICS of INTEREST (non-exclusive)

- Variability across the software life cycle
- Measurement, prediction, and modelling of non-functional properties of variable
software systems
- Architecture and design of variable software systems
- Formal verification, testing, and debugging of variable software systems
- Refactoring and evolution of variable software systems
- Variability in systems of systems
- Variability mining
- Reverse engineering of variability
- Synthesis in the presence of variability
- Formal reasoning and automated analysis on variability
- Software economic aspects of variability
- Visualisation and management of variability


We welcome the following type of submissions related to the topics of VaMoS:

- Research papers describing novel contributions
- Problem statements describing open issues of theoretical or practical nature
- Reports on positive or negative experiences with techniques and tools
- Surveys and comparative studies investigating pros, cons and complementarities
- Research-in-progress reports including research results at a premature stage
- Data papers presenting interesting and important data sets to the community
- Case studies and empirical studies
- Tool papers or demonstrations
- Vision papers

Submissions must be in English, and between 4 and 8 pages in length in the ACM
proceedings format (
Full details on the content envisioned for data papers are given on the website.

The proceedings will be published in ACM’s International Conference
Proceedings Series, which includes a publication in the ACM digital library.
